Audience Impact On The Show
The show had beautiful cinematic shots, and it blended well with the vibes of the plot and climax. The first few episodes were brilliantly narrated and well described. The initial episodes brought forward some intense moments and grips the audience to its storyline as time passes. However, unfortunately, the next episodes were totally contradicting the brilliant narration in the first episodes. The episodes seemed to be forced and too much slowed with unnecessary detailing to every character.
The characters could not develop a relationship with either the audience or with each other, as the conversations and bonding between the best friends were dull. There were mentions of drugs and gun equipment. The audience was waiting eagerly for some action scenes, but none of the scenes were intense or had actual action sequences.
